City Community Centre Refresh Location: Toronto, Ontario

Custom ResidenceLocation: Aurora, Ontario
Description – New contemporary residence to replace existing bungalow.
The client was looking to replace an old bungalow with a new 3,500 s.f. single family home, having a clean, contemporary look, yet not to stand out too much from its surroundings. The proposed design takes from the older style of homes as far as over all massing, with a modern take on the use of exterior materials, window style and a high entry foyer framed by a "tower" over the entrance.
The project is currently in the construction phase.
Retail Pad RenovationLocation: Richmond Hill, Ontario
Description – Renovation of existing stand alone retail building to match existing plaza.
The client was looking to refresh and update the existing stand alone retail unit which was recently vacated by "Burger King" so it is ready to accept two new tenants.
Top photos were existing before renovations with respective photos of the newly renovated look.
New Retail Pad - Location - Toronto, Ontario, Lawrence and Pharmacy
Description - 5,000 square foot new retail pad with three retail units, split face stone base, ledge stone veneer accent columns, stucco top half with projecting parapet.
This site had a 40 year old retail unit, slowly deteriorating and as a result, a poor reflection on the local neighbourhood. This intersection is highly visible with great potential.
A part of the existing structure was kept in place per city requirements in order to consider this project a major renovation. While staying within existing foot prints of the existing building, a new structure with a much better street presence is created, that will enliven this highly visible intersection.
